Malmo Airport to Ronnerby Brunn - 190km (2hrs+), plus cost of hire car, fuel & tolls.

Re: ICSF

Just a thought - Ronnerby isnt close to the International airports of Malmo or Stockholm which adds even more costs to attend.

Re: ICSF

At the 2006 ICSF World Championships / Emerald World Masters, had Heywel Morgan as the announcer and what a great job he did. His knowledge on all the casting styles being used, the competitors along with the odd joke was great to witness and be part of. I've still got the DVD from the event and it ...

Re: ICSF

Whilst I cannot comment for recent years, there has been a reduction in the number of countires participating at the World Championships (Castingsport), reading between the lines, the biggest hurdle is cost of participation and travel. I should really bring that attendance chart up to date. 2019 WC'...

ICSF

One issue that needs to be addressed is the trend of reducing numbers at the prestigious World Championships, unless the focus is now on the 'City' events ? I have mapped the number of attendees per country from 2004 to 2014 as the cost increases the numbers decrease :???: 2005 & 2007 where European...

Platform, or No Platform
